Booktalk: Ella Morton, co-author of “Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide To The World’s Hidden Wonders”

Dear Explorers, this is not your usual travel guide. Ella describes the book’s beginnings and how it came to be filled with some 700 sights you’ve not likely seen. Not many people have. Such as the Stairway to Heaven in Hawaii, the secret apartment in the Eiffel Tower and that flaming hole in the Turkmenistan desert.

Top authors are interviewed on this 10-minute program that captures their words about their books and ideas and often the story behind the story. The show, hosted by Diana Korte and engineered by Gene Korte, has been in production for over 20 years
